About Richard Brawer:
Becoming an author was the last thing Richard Brawer thought he would do. After graduating the University of Florida and a six months basic training tour in the National Guard, Richard worked in the curtain and linen area of the textile industry in New York City. The company he worked for went out of business in 1973 so he and his wife took a gamble and opened a home decorator store which they ran successfully until they retired in 1999.
Always having a vivid imagination Richard would occasionally come across a newspaper article that would cause him to wonder, what would happen if―? Working 60 to 70 hours a week at his business, Richard didn’t do anything with his inquisitiveness until he read a horrendous article about child that was born with brain damage and the father refused to take him home from the hospital.
The father thought he could return the child like a “jar of mayonnaise” he bought in a store. The nurses were outraged and their disgust was quoted in the article. That’s when Richard’s imagination took over and he asked himself, “What if the child was misdiagnosed?”
With mysteries being his favorite genre to read, Richard took that thought and began making notes. The notes turned into paragraphs and the paragraphs into chapters. Thus his first mystery, The Nurse Wore Black was born. From there Richard went on to write three more mysteries, an historical fiction novel, two thrillers and is working on his eighth novel.
